Today is the day that the first cool front of the season sweeps into Southwest Florida, and it now appears the front will move through faster than expected, speeding up arrival of cooler, less humid air.

As the front makes its journey through the area today, we'll see more clouds around along with some passing showers from mid-morning through the early afternoon. The rain that manages to develop will likely start winding down by the mid-afternoon, so the second half of the day should end up being dry but still fairly cloudy. Rain totals today should stay low, probably less than a quarter-inch.

Temperatures will be a few degrees cooler today, due to the extra cloud cover, so most spots should warm only into the mid 80s this afternoon. We should start to feel the air become less humid by this afternoon and this evening, as the front makes more progress southward.
